Speed may be universal, but language is not. Maybe no one knows that better this week than Shigeaki Hattori of Costa Mesa. Hattori, 34, is the oldest driver--by nearly nine years over the average age of his competitors--in the developmental Indy Lights Championship. He was just another also-ran in his first two seasons in the series. That changed in the first race of 1998. Hattori won convincingly in Homestead, Fla., starting second and leading 64 of 67 laps on the 1.5-mile oval.

Dan Gurney's Santa Ana-based All American Racers had an up-and-down day. Rookie driver Alex Barron crashed after qualifying, but because the damage was so extensive, officials will allow Barron to use his backup car today without penalty. Before the new Eagle chassis' rear gave way and Barron crashed going into Turn 2, he reached 230.430 mph, good enough for 15th--the best qualifying position for AAR with a Toyota engine.

Arciero-Wells Racing came to the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach hoping for modest success and high fives in what is essentially a hometown race for the Santa Margarita-based Toyota team. But through Saturday, the weekend had been a colossal disappointment. "We just don't have the [RV8B] engine developed to the point that we can be competitive," team owner Cal Wells said. "It's not to the point where we run consistently. We're really using this as a test session. "We're struggling. . . .

Still woozy from Friday's hard crash into the Turn 1 wall during practice for the Indianapolis 500, two-time champion Arie Luyendyk and Speedway medical director Dr. Henry Bock agreed Wednesday that Luyendyk should not drive in the May 25 race. "Since the crash, I noticed I wasn't as coherent as I should be," Luyendyk said in announcing his decision. "Obviously, my back and neck had some pain, so I got in touch with Dr. Bock and told him I didn't think I was ready to get back in the car."

Buddy Lazier raced to his third victory in his last four Indy Racing League starts Saturday night, leading the final 23 laps of the Harrah's Indy 200 in Gladeville, Tenn. Lazier, the defending IRL champion who has a series-record seven victories, celebrated by almost jumping out of his car as he took a victory lap. He avoided the engine problems at the Nashville Superspeedway that knocked several drivers out and a crash midway through the race that took out five others.

Nick Price no longer has to wonder what it takes to get into the World Golf Hall of Fame. Price, who won three major championships and dominated golf in the early 1990s, was elected Tuesday through the PGA Tour ballot and will be the 99th member of the hall. No other player was elected through the PGA Tour or International ballot. Price will be inducted Oct. 20 at the World Golf Village near St. Augustine, Fla.

Helio Castro Neves' race lasted about a quarter-mile, from the starting line to the first turn. Then Sunday's PPG Firestone Indy Lights race turned into a Long Beach parade and Neves was its drum major. He was never headed or threatened in the 40-lap run that was shortened from the scheduled 47 laps because the one-hour time limit was imposed. There were four caution periods, the product of five wrecks--one a double header, on opposite sides of the 1.
